You can make one out of plywood & any plastics shop can copy your design. It's pretty simple. If you need curves, use 1/8" ply

Give Rik Wimp a call from Arneson, I believe he has a company that makes them for some of the companies and might be able to help.

http://www.arneson-industries.com/

The only other one I know about is Acrylico they make them also.

There's been several threads about it in the Cig section. Some people have had them made or bought them from Cigarette.

Default Windshields

We make the OEM's for several of the manufacturers - The problem is that if we do we cannot sell direct unless they let us - Bummer!

I wish it where that simple!
First there is the ethics of it, but the main problem is that if you need something custom we're into molds which is megabucks. If you have the mold it's fairly simple to knock out the windshield. If you don't it's a real pain 'cause it ties you up for weeks. Some of the oldies it's simple because they didn't form them.
With the economy as it is, we've been experimenting on overhauling windshields and have started with the high performance polycarbonate ones. Here we can sand them down to 8000 grit and reapply the hardcoat. That saves a bundle. We haven't done this with acrylics yet, tho!

Page 104 of the new Powerboat has an ad from Aero Marine about Acrylic Windshields. I happened to notice it when reading. LaVerne, CA 909-392-5544 Email [email protected] or www.aeromarineone.com. Looked interesting.
